Old Nick in the Nick
9 February 2010 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Some flics throw an elegantly dressed man into an empty prison cell. He proceeds to pull out all the furnishings needed to provide him some creature comforts, including a handsome young lady. How it all turns out.... well, the title tells it all.

Here we have a fairly late version of Melies' single most imitated film, THE HAUNTED CASTLE, which he remade a dozen times. As always, the piece is a matter of pure magic, both of the stage and film variety, although it is mostly the film variety in this version, enhanced the stage presence he developed in his years as a magician and manager-owner of the Theatre Robert-Houdin, founded by probably the most famous stage magician of the 19th Century, so well-known that Houdini chose a close variant for his stage name.

And even though the title gives it away, it's always a pleasure to watch Melies do this sort of film.
